Yo Soy Negro

Tanya Maria Golash-Boza

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the transatlantic and transpacific slave trades that brought Africans to Peru and juxtaposes this history with how the contemporary descendants of Ingenio construct their origins. It argues that the local history of Ingenio explains why slavery does not form part of people's collective consciousness. This conceptualization of blackness also has implications for ideas of mestizaje in Latin America.

Keywords:   blackness, Ingenio, slave trade, racial geography, Peru, slave labor, slavery, mestizaje
